THE MARSHAL AT THE VILLA TORRINI
By Magdalen Nabb
Soho Press, Inc., 2009 ($13.00)
Reviewed by Dawn Crawford
Marshal Guarnaccia of the Italian Police is on a strict diet, and he is not a happy man. All he seems to be able to think about is his stomach. However, he must put his personal feelings aside as he has his hands full investigating the murder of a well-known writer, while dealing with a previous case, which is now in court.
There is a lot going on in this story, but when the author goes back and forth between the current murder investigation and the court case, it seems somewhat disjointed.
This mystery is set in Florence, and even if you don't care for the storyline, the book is worth a read, just for the description of the surroundings.
